About this title


"TURKISH WRESTLING" is the first photography book ever to reveal the fascinating world of Turkey's oldest sport. Over a period of three years, fine art photographer Lawrence Grecco visited the KIRKPINAR championships, Turkey's equivalent to the World Series, and received special access to photograph the wrestling matches on the outdoor field where they take place. The resulting archive of powerful black and white and color photographs transport the viewer to this exotic realm of hulking men coated in olive oil, wearing only custom tailored leather britches as they grapple with each other under a relentless Mediterranean sun.

About the Author:

Lawrence Grecco's photography has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe, and seen in numerous international publications. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Centro di Ricerca ed Archivazione della Fotografia in Italy, the Hillwood Art Museum in New York, and the Leslie Lohman Art Foundation in New York City.

His personal involvement in martial arts, particularly jiu jitsu, wrestling, and other fighting methods inspired him to document Turkey's annual outdoor wrestling tournament (Kirkpinar) over a three year period.
